Lemon & Vanilla Shortbread Bars

November 29 2023

If you explore the cookie category on my website, it will become evident that a shortbread-style cookie is one of my favourites. Buttery, flaky, with minimal ingredients and fuss, it is truly a delicious sweet treat.

These lemon and vanilla shortbread bars exemplify this. They are the perfect blend of buttery goodness, a hint of sweetness, and scents of vanilla and lemon.

Ideal for any day, but especially perfect for the festive season. Enjoy!

Roasted Hazelnut, Almond & Sour Cherry Florentines

November 15 2023

Here's my take on a popular classic holiday cookie that you just have to try: Roasted Hazelnut, Almond and Sour Cherry Florentines.

These chewy and fruity treats feature a delicate blend of roasted nuts, tart cherries, and a touch of chocolate. They're thin, crispy, and have a delicious toffee-like flavour.

They're perfect for sharing or gifting throughout the year, especially during Christmas, and can effortlessly add a festive touch to your table.

For those seeking a gluten-free option, feel free to substitute the plain flour with a gluten-free baking blend flour.
